P2&3. From the sublime to the ridiculous. Finished Atlantis/etc and headed over to this "bloody chimney". Fully deserving of 3* just for how much me and my partner laughed at each other. NWR route description sums it up nicely - at least you know what you're letting yourself in for!

Led pitch 1. Fun route.
tmawer - AltLd O/S - 17/May/14 with Bram

Underestimated the entry to the chimney. Otherwise a great solo.

In the rain after figuring that UFO was definitely wet ;-) abbed off after 2nd pitch and rope got stuck so Helena climbed 1st pitch again. Bit epic and very wet...

CragDog - AltLd - 30/Jun/12

Lead P1,3. a bit of a fight at times, got genuinely stuck and had to squirm back down to re-rack at one point!

Hidden - 2012

Got to Gogarth in really high winds, and waves absolutely smashing into the bottom of Main Cliff. Led p1 and p3. Pitch 1 has some squirmy manoeuvres. Got totally pissed on, on p3 which got quite scary actually! Soft for HVS but probably not VS? Brilliant route...
Duncan Campbell - UKC - AltLd O/S - 17/Oct/11 with Matt "Beast", Pete, Bubbles

cherad - 2nd O/S - 21/Aug/11 with colin crockart

Lead P2. Fun struggling up the chimneys! A bit run out, but you won't really fall out. Great positions to belay from.

Sgt. Vest - 2nd O/S - 11/Mar/11 with Andy Davies

A fine addition to the Upper Tier HVS's. Low in the grade if you like squirming

appropriately named. A real stuggle. I clearly need practice at squeeze chimneys.
